Female Artists Show Strength at New York's Park Avenue Fair
March 2, 2019
The push for women, with higher prices and wider exposure for their work, is palpable at the venerable show at the Park Avenue Armory, which runs through Sunday in New York. About a quarter of exhibitors are presenting solo and dual booths dedicated to female artists, long overshadowed and undervalued compared to men. The 96-year-old sculptor Beverly Pepper was the subject of Kayne Griffin Corcoran’s booth, which displayed her early, small-scale, abstract works in bronze, brass and steel.
